ImageI/O-Ext 1.1-RC1 Released

Dear all,
GeoSolutions is pleased to announce the ImageI/O-Ext 1.1-RC1 release which has been incubating for a long time.
Changes with respect to 1.0.x series can be summarised as follows:

  • Out-of-the-box Support for GDAL 1.7.3, which means no more patches are needed for GDAL Java bindings in order to access it from ImageI/O-Ext.
  • BigTiff support, breaking the 4GB TIFF limit.
  • EnhancedImageReadParam support. It extends the standard ImageReadParam by implementing Cloneable (used when supporting MultiThreading read operation) and a new DestinationRegion param to support oversampling/subsampling without specifying sourceSubSampling parameters. This may be used when dealing with readers which internally take care of performing subSampling/overSampling, such as the GDALImageReader
  • Experimental multidimension plugin for reading spatiotemporal sources like:
    • netCDF raster files following the Climate and Forecast (CF) convention
    • GriB edition 1
    • HDF version 4

Release artifacts have been deployed on the GeoSolutions maven repository, as well as on the OSGEO one.
